Training program on Specific Learning Disabilities For Teachers /Students

Introduction to the SLD:

"Specific learning disability means a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoken or written, which may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or to do mathematical calculations.

Specific learning disability (SLD) is a common and invisible yet highly impactful disability. It is a disability recognized by few but afflicting many and causing high degree of impact. Since it has an important bearing on academic function, it carries high degree of distress in the Indian society.

SLDs are neurodevelopment disorders affecting 5%–17% of the children. In our country the prevalence of dyslexia varies between 3% and 10%. It is characterized by difficulties in reading, listening, writing, mathematical, and reasoning skills.

The most common prototype, occurring in 80% of children, is dyslexia wherein there is a core deficit of phonological processing and is associated with difficulties in working memory. Phonological awareness is an important pointer of reading skill in both consistent and not so consistent orthographies.

The other disorders include Dysgraphia, difficulties in written expression and dyscalculia (i.e.) difficulties in mathematical skills.

These disorders occur across all cultures, results of population-based surveys suggest that about 30% of learning disabled children have behavioral and emotional problems. Indian studies report 25% to 84% co-morbidity. In a study by Bäcker and Neuhäuser on 77 children with dyslexia, psychological co morbidity was found in 66.2%. Of these, the most frequent was adjustment disorders, followed by hyperkinetic disorders and anxiety.


Problems faced due to SLD

SLD has an impact on the developing self-esteem. Compared to their siblings, they have a lower self-esteem and they believe they have fewer praiseworthy qualities and do not have much to be proud about. They reported higher levels for loneliness and negative mood. Students with SLD have lower grades in all the reported subjects. In school, students with SLD have academic difficulties coupled with lower academic self-concepts and lower self-perceptions and self-esteem.

According to motivation researchers, failure and poor performance lead to doubts about general intellectual abilities, which in turn lead to reduced effort, further failure, and poor academic outcomes. Overall their health-related quality of life is significantly impaired. The disability besides having a high impact on the child has a negative impact on the family and parents. This is more so when there is poor awareness, lack of social support and when the disability is attributed to the child's characteristics. Very often the disability is associated with neurological issues such as epilepsy.

The disability is seen to run in families. It is proposed that a combination of many genes and environmental factors along with contribution of rare variants is etiologically responsible for the presentation. Intervention is in the form of remedial education. Intensive individual or small group training has shown to be beneficial. Provisions and accommodations allow the child to cope with their disabilities.


Need for intervention on learning Disability

Since difficulties with reading, writing and/or math are recognizable problems during the school years, the signs and symptoms of learning disabilities are most often diagnosed during that time. However, some individuals do not receive an evaluation until they are in post-secondary education or adults in the workforce. Other individuals with learning disabilities may never receive an evaluation and go through life, never knowing why they have difficulties with academics and why they may be having problems in their jobs or in relationships with family and friends.

Generally speaking, people with learning disabilities are of average or above average intelligence. There often appears to be a gap between the individual’s potential and actual achievement. This is why learning disabilities are referred to as “hidden disabilities”: the person looks perfectly “normal” and seems to be a very bright and intelligent person, yet may be unable to demonstrate the skill level expected from someone of a similar age.

A learning disability cannot be cured or fixed; it is a lifelong challenge. However, with appropriate support and intervention, people with learning disabilities can achieve success in school, at work, in relationships, and in the community.


Remedial Teaching

The remedial teaching can be defined as ‘ the name implies, is designed to cater to the needs of children unable to keep pace with the teaching-learning process in a normal classroom.

The objective of remedial teaching is to give additional help to pupils who, for one reason or another, have fallen behind the rest of the class in the subjects of Tamil , English and Mathematics. The ultimate aim of remedial teaching is to help pupils who have fallen behind to learn to the best of their ability and to bring them back into the mainstream.
